After attending an Ikebana Exhibition at the Japanese Embassy, I was inspired to create an arrangement of my own.
So I took myself off to Belfiore, a favourite flower shop of mine, to see what wonderful exotic blooms they had to offer that day.
I chose some beautiful orange Star of Bethlehem,
some mimosa with its cascading tiny yellow pompom buds,
as well as some long-lasting orange and yellow alstroemeria.
combined with a glossy green leaf and interesting pieces of driftwood. Et voila!
